Burning car sparked ‘total loss’ West End garage fire

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Authorities said a garage and the two cars inside it are a total loss after a fire broke out inside the structure Saturday evening in Henrico County's West End.

Henrico Fire crews were called to a home in the 1500 Block Harborough Road  just before 6 p.m. for reports that a car caught fire inside the garage and set the garage on fire.

"When firefighters arrived the entire garage was on fire and was beginning to damage the nearby home, threatening to set it on fire as well," Capt. Rob Rowley with Henrico County Fire said.

When firefighters arrived five minutes later, they found a detached garage and the two cars inside "heavily involved" in the home's backyard.

Crews were able to extinguish the fire in about 20 minutes and prevent it from spreading to the home, but Rowley said the garage was already a "total loss" by that time.
